A bit of fun today with a car park that we came across on the way to the Lake District. The surface had craters so huge and deep that would easily destroy the hardiest of sumps.
You can gauge the size of these by the red car parked on the right of the picture.

The second one is a path that I walked down today in the Dalby Forest that needed the strongest of wellies/boots to survive it.

Update on building work.

One more day and the work is at last finished here. The electrician has now wired up the garage and redone the electrics that needed finishing off in the house and just left. The two internal windows have been fitted in the hallway, the log burner arrives tomorrow and the last of the handyman jobs will also be finished before the weekend.
What will I do with my time, not having to make endless cups of tea and hours of clearing up the rubbish!
When I have made the curtains I will put a shot of the new lounge on EPZ for those of you have kept me going through the last 6 months.

Thanks for stopping to look, nice to be online again, but I did get so much work done without EPZ being available.

Hope you have a Landrover/Tractor/JCB to deal with all those potholes in the car park, and sturdy gumboots (as they once used to say) for that path.

There are major thoroughfares around here that are scarcely better maintained than this car park, Annette! Mind you, they don't all have the same view in the distance...
#2 is a lovely image, suggesting long lonely walks (and cold feet Sad). It contains loads of detail including traces of a passing bicycle I think.
Glad to hear the good news.
Regards
Bill
